We have always seen very interesting and different indie films here. I'm always surprised there are not many people given that it is a great theatre. Where else can you get a Mexican coke to take into the movie? You definitely should check it out, whether you are a local, a visitor, or a semi-local like me.

This little theater on the campus of the College of Art and Design shows interesting films you probably won't see elsewhere in the city. Plenty of parking, easy access, friendly staff. Not a huge selection, but mostly very thought provoking films.

Great screen, great sound and always a great selection of foreign / independent films! By far the best cinema in Santa Fe and perhaps anywhere!

We went two times to see arty movies that are shown at special theaters where we live. It was close to Days Inn where we stayed.

It's at the SF University of Art and Design, between St. Michael's and Cerillos. If you like the smaller films it's a great place to watch them. Easily the best sound system of any theater in Santa Fe.

Santa Fe is blessed with probably more theaters than any town its size. In addition we have a bounty of indie screens beyond the standard issue 14 screen multiplex. On any given day you could pick among 9 to 12 independent or foreign film screenings around town. The Screen, at the University of Art and Design is, for my money,... More

The diverse programming, comfortable seats, excellent projection and sound systems, and reasonable price make this Santa Fe's best film art house along with the CCA Cinematique and the Jean Cocteau.
